Riches in your ears.

I continue to get most of my RDA of fiction from audio.  The most recent installment of PRI’s Selected Shorts was a good one, with stories being read including Ernest Hemingway’s "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place," and his "After the
Storm," as well as Haruki Murakami’s "The Little Green
Monster." 

The New Yorker has a new story available as well (why only once a month?) – this time around, a reading of Mavis Gallant’s "When We Were Nearly Young."  You can find it at their site, maybe – as of this writing,  it’s a dead link, to the Gallant piece, but maybe the weird basement guy in charge of podcast maintenance will notice by the time you read this post, and fix it.

  1. James Joyce: “He [Hemingway] has reduced the veil between literature and life, which is what every writer strives to do. Have you read ‘A Clean Well-Lighted Place’?…It is masterly. Indeed, it is one of the best short stories ever written…”

  2. The guest host of Selected Shorts had a lot of similar praise for the story. It is pretty outstanding. I hadn’t read Hemingway in years. I’m thinking of getting back to the short stories.

    For a few years, I read AMF every fall. Great, great stuff.
